Hair loss is a very common condition, with at least one of every three people experiencing some level of hair thinning or complete baldness by the age of 50. This raises a question – is it possible to regrow hair?
While hair loss is often caused by genetics or aging, there may be other causes you might not have considered, so the answer to the previous question isn’t as simple as yes or no. So, today, we’ll explore the reasons why your hair might be falling out and if anything can be done to restore it.
Why Is Hair Falling Out?
It is natural to lose hair every day. Most people will lose up to a hundred hair strands each day. However, that is not the same as hair loss.
Hair loss occurs due to a process called miniaturization. What happens essentially is your hair follicles shrink slowly, but steadily, until they eventually disappear, causing you to permanently lose that particular hair.
This usually happens because of a hormone called dihydrotestosterone, or DHT. And while DHT is the usual suspect when it comes to losing hair, it’s hardly the only culprit.
With that in mind, we can now try and answer the age-old question…
Is It Possible To Regrow Hair?
Unfortunately, the answer isn’t as simple as we would’ve liked it to be. It’s both yes and no.
The latter is the answer if your hair loss occurs due to DHT, which have caused your hair follicle to disappear. Essentially, if the follicle is gone, no amount of minoxidil or other compounds will help your hair grow back. Not even a hair transplant will take. If you don’t believe us – look at LeBron.
On the other hand, if the follicle is intact or slightly damaged, then yes, it is both possible and very likely you’ll be able to regrow your hair with some hair growth products from Tayloani like the aforementioned minoxidil or special shampoos.
What Can You Do To Regrow Your Hair?
There are many things that you can do to stimulate hair growth, but it would be difficult to give specific advice without knowing your general health, family history of baldness, etc.
However, there are some things that have proven to be universally effective at combating hair loss and enhancing hair growth.
Two of the most popular solutions are minoxidil and finasteride. These two are what’s known as DHT inhibitors, and if you recall our brief explanation of why we experience hair loss, it becomes obvious why these are the most popular options. However, these come with an array of possible side effects, and their effect on hair growth is only present while you’re using them. As soon as you stop – the hair will once again start falling out.
On the other hand, you may try and rely on some of the other, more natural approaches like massaging your scalp or using natural remedies like Aloe Vera, coconut oil, fish oil, lemon, and others. What you can also do is limit stress and increase your intake of iron, zinc, and vitamin B – especially B2 and B7.
While it is possible to regrow hair – it may not be as easy as one would think. It all depends on your particular condition.
We hope you’ve learned something today, but we’re even more hopeful that you’ll be able to regrow your hair back.
